It wasn't until I took my first bite that I realized how waxy honeycomb can be. After a lengthy amount of chewing, I wasn't so sure if what remained was meant to be consumed. Afterward, I did a bit of research and found that some people eat the wax, while others choose to spit it out. Have you ever eaten honeycomb? If so, do you eat the wax, or do you spit it out?
Honeycomb's big these days on contemporary cheese platters, and I just recently had a chance to try it myself. At Samovar Tea Lounge, the unrefined nectar was served on a wooden carving board alongside a crumbly blue cheese and crackers, making for a rustic appetizer.
